its on a google docs ... :) was just wondering if there would be any speed advantage in having one person doing the colouring ? or just leave it open for people to do themselves as they get them for others or themselves ? just mulling ideas over at the moment 

I think people doing their own would be the speediest option. If 4 or 5 groups get on at the same time 1 person could be inundated with requests. I think for each group having someone who will concentrate more on communication is useful. We usually have about 6 devices between my husband and I but I usually only try and manage one or 2 so I can concentrate on messages coming in as well and he can ignore them completely.

I think it's good news that they are possibly going to use the extra 7000 tickets as hopefully that means even when they deal with the problems with the locals sale there will still be some left to try for.

and even if people are unable to do buses as mentioned by @Big durbs a bit further back it might take pressure off the main resale a little .. potentially ... maybe ... did I mention overthinking ? :)

Yes. I just want Kendrick Lamar to be announced so that all the people who are outraged that there are not enough white men with guitars can give up their tickets.

My group from the main sale have our own little resale group going and ill be helping them out, they'll be in groups of 4 and are going to sort out payment after if successful. This is probably the easiest way to do it as it cuts down on trying to exchange details mid sale but it means you all have to trust each other and everybody has to have around £1100 ready to go to cover 4 tickets (more for the coach resale). Closing the group a month before is a good idea becuase it gives you all a chance to get to know each other. Maybe getting some sort of a prepaid card like a Swirl card for each group of 4, then you can each load it with £270 and share the card details among the group. Dunno if you guys have swirl cards in the UK but you'll have something similar.

I actually met someone who is putting their ticket 'back' the other night - I thought these people were myths.

Ok. It’s been bloody hard but I’ve finally done it. I’ve accepted that I haven’t got tickets. I’ve emailed my details to @vintagelaureate 

 

I'M IN, AND WE CAN DO THIS!

2 from my group will be throwing their coach tickets back - nothing to do with lineups or bad life stuff just more optimism than practical reality when they joined up in the first place. so the myth is real! :-)

i certainly hope those 2 end up going to 2 of those in this thread. good luck!

I put mine back for 2015.

Mrs came off the pill the day of my mate's wedding and we did the deed that night.  Next morning was the sale & we all got tickets.  Worked the dates out & realised if she got up the duff I wouldn't be able to go so didn't have sex for 2 months.  In the meantime I'd bought 30 preg tests off eBay for £3.  When they arrived I tried one out on her & it went straight to prgnant.  We had literally had sex once, the day she came off the pill.  Daughter's due date was July 8th so couldn't go & had to cancel my ticket.  Pretty genuine reason I'd say but was gutted.  Went again in 2016 and what a shit year that was!

A couple of positives there ... the pregnancy test ... and the price ... although I don’t know what you would use a bulk buy of kits for ? :)

Oh yeah it was just because they and I quote "didn't fancy it."

FOOLS. 

Also, @semmtexx I've had someone come off so to keep it coherent I'll just swap the details over. 

@Benja100 I'd say that's a pretty good reason to be fair!

I had to give mine up twice - 2010 and 2011 on the advice of doctors. Very genuine reasons but still absolutely gutting.

Hi all, I'm new here... Didn't get tickets in October but are planning our entire trip around Glasto anyways for a hail mary attempt at resale tickets in April... (we're coming from Australia, first Glasto for both of us). I have a bit of a love story wrapped up in Glasto, so we're holding out the strongest of hopes that we get tickets... 

We're going for our honeymoon, and the whole reason we started dating was because we were chatting about Glasto rumors and dream line ups. We both are big Beatles fans and said seeing Paul on the Pyramid Stage would be peak festival goals (to round out our dream top 3 was Prince & Bowie, so Paul is our last hope). Anyways, we chatted for a long time about that and shamelessly flirted, which led to us dating.... now, 5 years later, we're hoping this could be a reality on our HONEYMOON!

Anyways, that's my sappy love story and why I'm here. I'll browse the thread but it's quite long, so apologies in advance if I ask stupid questions.

Brilliant story - congratulations on the (I assume) upcoming wedding, too.

There are no stupid questions - ask away! 
 

Get yourselves on the spreadsheet and come April everyone will be helping each other out.

Welcome to the forum :)
